"I have been overwhelmed by the support I have received from the UST community, from the visitors at the hospital, to the phone calls, to the cards and letters, to the great encouragement on the CaringBridge Web site. As sad as this has been, I have laughed and smiled much more than I have been sad about the situation.
"I know I have a tough road ahead, so I will continue to count on your prayers, thoughts and good wishes for the upcoming six weeks of radiation and chemotherapy. I will frequently update the CaringBridge Web site. THANKS AGAIN!"
